President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades held a telephone conversation with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May, Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides said on his twitter account.

The conversation focused on the Cyprus talks, according to the Spokesman.

Over the past two days, President Anastasiades has been in touch with various players interested in the UN-led peace effort, aiming to find a negotiated settlement that would reunite Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

The most recent intensive round of talks, focusing on territory, between the President and the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Mustafa Akinci ended inconclusively in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The President has vowed to continue working hard towards a solution.
